Fraser rues missed chance against Ipswich

Ryan Fraser has been one of the undoubted successes of AFCB's season. Now a regular in the side he has flourished under the guidance of Eddie Howe and Jason Tindall. He has added some goal success to his game but against Ipswich he just failed to give the Cherries the lead when he had been gifted a chance by Aaron Cresswell. The ball came to Ryan very unexpectedly and he perhaps had too much time to think about it and saw his shot fly over the bar without making Gerken do any work. I think that is all Eddie Howe will say to Ryan - just hit the target and maybe next time you will get luckier. 

Ryan Fraser has put in some tremendous performances for AFCB.
The rest of the season promises much for Ryan.
I hope that the missed opportunity does not weigh on Ryan's mind too long because he has been doing so much right in recent games. His pace has been a big asset to AFCB all season and he has started to put in back-to-back performances which is no mean feet for such a young talent and he has been keeping Marc Pugh out of the team occasionally.

I think his shooting is something that he would like to improve most now. On video he has been quoted as saying this week that Eddie Howe has been working on his positioning to make sure he is available to receive the ball more often and against Ipswich he was often quick to lead the counter attack. His shot count is perhaps something he can work on but he did make Gerken make a couple of saves during the Ipswich game and I don't think it will be long before he is back on the score sheet. 

It is great to see so many of our young players at AFCB doing well at the moment. O'Kane and Cook in particular have been pluses this season and I hope Eddie Howe and Dave Webb are looking to scout some more young talent that are suited to Bournemouth's style of play.
